I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Finance at Tilburg University (The Netherlands). My main area of interest lies in the microstructure of financial markets (i.e., the analysis, design, and regulation of trading mechanisms). In my research liquidity, frictions, and trading intermediaries take center stage. In particular, I study corporate bond dealers in their role as liquidity providers in decentralized over-the-counter (OTC) markets. I approach microstructure topics both from a theoretical and an empirical angle.

I will join the Federal Reserve Board of Governors (Washington, DC) later this year.
